The Shearwater Teric is a full technical watch style dive computer with a full-colour AMOLED display that supports technical open circuit divers and closed-circuit rebreather divers but also caters for recreational divers that want an amazing looking computer that will do everything they need as they progress towards technical diving and beyond.
The Teric includes open-circuit and closed-circuit Air, Nitrox and Trimix multi-gas functionality along with a 3-axis tilt-compensated digital compass. It has Recreational, Gauge, Freediving, Open-Circuit Tech and Closed-Circuit/Bail-Out modes.
The housing has four buttons and incorporates situation adaptable logic menus to make operating and diving the Teric very intuitive, meaning the menus will change depending on what is most likely to be needed in a particular situation. The buttons can also be configured to take you to a particular tool, for example, long holding a button might take you straight to the compass. The haptic (vibration) and audible alarms can be disabled (none, either, both) to your own personal choice.
The uses a 35mm diameter full-colour AMOLED display within a 55mm diameter and 18mm high body and weighs approximately 120g. The display brightness levels are user adjustable and accessible with just one button press for quick and easy access at any time.
During a decompression dive, the Teric provides complete information displays of all required stop times. The Teric can provide time-to-surface based on "look ahead" at planned gas switches. Multiple gas definition presets are supported with any combination of oxygen, nitrogen and helium. The Teric will NOT "lockout" after a missed stop or ascent rate violation. After the dive, the Teric communicates via Bluetooth to connect with the Shearwater Cloud dive log manager, which is compatible with Windows, OS X, iOS and Android devices, supporting wireless log downloads and firmware updates.
The Teric can be used with up to two optional wireless transmitters to monitor cylinder pressures and provide data to perform Gas Time Remaining and other similar calculations. Shearwater Research advice that as long as the transmitter is marked with "FCC ID MH8A" on the body then the transmitter, regardless of the brand, will also work with the Teric dive computer. We have a compatible Aqua Lung Transmitter available.
The Teric features a wireless rechargeable battery and is supplied with a wireless induction charger stand. Typical dive time on a single charge is at least 30 hours and as much as 50 hours, depending on the features enabled. The expected life of the built-in battery is five years and the battery can be replaced at one of the Shearwater factory authorised service centres.
